Breakthrough in HIV/AIDS Vaccine

Well the battle against HIV/AIDS appears to be looking just a little bit better on our part. The newly designed AIDS vaccine seems to show some promise even if it is just a little bit. Trials of the AIDS vaccine were conducted in human patients in Thailand. The studies suggest that the vaccine helps protect against 30% of HIV/AIDS transmissions over a three year period.

Even though 30% doesn’t seem like an overly large percentage, image 30% of 15 million, 30 million, 6 billion. 30% is always better than 0%. Obviously this has been an amazing breakthrough in modern medicine. Maybe after these clinical trials, different methods of making this vaccine will help produce a better vaccine. Maybe in the next 10 year we will see a vaccine that will protect 50% of people that use it. Who knows maybe we’ll make a world changing discovery that leads to a vaccine that is 100% effective. A world free of HIV/AIDS.

The world has been waiting for this kind of a breakthrough. Many people have given generously to the cause, but many more will still be needed. Africa is worst hit by the HIV/AIDS virus. This is due to a lack of proper education and availability of effective birth control. These people need help, and we need to give it to them. They are human too. What if we were infected by a deadly, fatal disease. Without a cure, without proper treatment. Would we ask for help? You bet we would. Just because it doesn’t happen on this continent doesn’t mean we shouldn’t care.
